Dean's Welcome

I am very happy to welcome you to our college website. It gives me great pleasure to lead the College of Medicine as I work together with faculty and our students to bring the college to the forefront of medical schools in the region.

Our vision is to build the most active academic medical center in the region and be a centre of excellence in teaching, medical research and clinical training. We aim to graduate doctors who are competitive, innovative, knowledgeable, passionate and caring.

We implement a problem-based learning (PBL) system, which allows students exposure to clinical medicine early in their studies. We also encourage our students to be involved in clinical and basic research and expect them to not only excel as physicians but also as scientists with the ability to contribute to furthering our knowledge, particularly in disease-related fields relevant to our community.

His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah, and President of the University of Sharjah, and Professor Hamid M.K. Al Naimiy, Chancellor of the University, have made available to the college abundant resources so that we may continue the story of success that was started in 2006.

We provide a warm environment for students from different nationalities and all the necessary tools to accommodate them. We further do our best to provide them with the necessary means to succeed.  The MOUs that we have signed with various well-known international universities include faculty exchange and program collaboration and allow our students to complete their electives (clinical and research) off campus to gain diverse experiences.

Most of our graduates are currently in residency programs in and outside the UAE. We invite our graduates to keep in touch with our college and are in the process of establishing a cohesive alumni program and events for our college graduates. We advocate an open door policy and our main objective is to build trust between faculty members and students.

Please join us in positioning the College of Medicine on the international scene.

Dean of the College of Medicine
